As I look back upon the last two years that I’ve had the opportunity to chair the United Way’s Women in Philanthropy Steering committee, it is incredibly moving to see the progress we have made. This progress has come from the visionary women who first formed the group, from the visionary women who have served on the committee over the years, and from the visionary women who have joined our mission as Women in Philanthropy, Women Leaders in Philanthropy, and the Women’s Leadership Council.
As I share the words of Robert Frost below, I understand that previously, these were all “roads not taken” in our community. Joyfully, all of us have had the courage to choose “The Road Not Taken” and it truly has made all the difference. Thank you, thank you, thank you and may you enjoy all blessings in 2012.
